Carter Jonas puts rare re-development opportunity on the Bath market

By Nick Batten on 11 October, 2019

Carter Jonas, the national property consultancy, has been instructed to bring to market 97-101 Walcot Street, Bath – a characterful leasehold building totalling approximately 3,415 sq ft (317 sq m).

97-101 Walcot Street is arranged over two floors, with access to the open-plan ground floor via a gated entrance and sliding doorway. To be sold with vacant possession, the property most recently was used for the restoration and repair of antique furniture. Though substantial renovation is required, the property – which holds a ‘sui generis’ use – has the potential for re-development for a range of purposes, including residential and commercial (subject to planning).

Known as Bath’s Artisan Quarter, Walcot Street has a reputation as the city’s artistic and creative heartland. Throughout its history, it has been home to creative workshops and festivals – with legendary poet Alan Ginsburg among those who have performed on the street.

Philip Marshall, Partner at Carter Jonas in Bath said, “97-101 Walcot Street occupies a prime position in one of the city’s most sought after retail and leisure destinations and represents a not-to-be-missed opportunity. Given the scale of the property, its flexibility and its potential it is a unique proposition – and we look forward to working with prospective purchasers to help realise the next chapter in its rich and colourful history.”

Best offers are invited for the property by 12 noon on the 25th October.
